Dear Friends, Colleagues, and Supporters of Public Education,

Our public schools are filled with heroes who continually step up for the children and communities they serve.  Just look at the teachers of

Saucedo Academy; the loving and courageous Antoinette Tuff and Kaitlyn Roig; the dedicated school personnel across the snowy Southeast; or the pure humanity of Jennifer Rose, the teacher of Ethan Rediske. The true colors of our public school employees shines through everyday!

Save Our Schools is proud to announce the second annual teacher and staff appreciation actions that will take place this May.

You are all invited to support teachers and school staff by taking actions to strengthen publicschools. We are working to have the traditional teacher appreciation day be more influential, informed, and responsive to the political issues facing teachers and students. Here’s what’s happening.

3. Here is a more comprehensive list of ideas and actions that you can take to show your support of teachers and staff in our public schools.

Spread the word to as many colleagues as possible, and thanks for you all do to demonstrate your support of public schools!
